Aeromexico has concluded a purchase agreement with Boeing for up to 90 737-8 and -9 aircraft, following a tentative order for the re-engined type.

"The order follows Aeromexico's letter of intent to purchase up to 100 aircraft announced on 25 July 2012," says the airline. "Of the 90 aircraft, 60 are firm deliveries with the ability to purchase an additional 30 aircraft, subject to reconfirmation by Grupo Aeromexico."

The company provided no details about delivery schedules, but says the 90 aircraft are worth $9 billion at list prices.

Aeromexico did not comment on the status of the 10 787-9s that were also included in July's tentative order.
